F11 key doesn't work ...

... on some pages. For example, once click here has started, it doesn't work. Anything known, please?

No problems here in both IE and Firefox

F11 key normally makes the window larger or smaller is this what you are trying to do.
If so it worked ok with me.

Yes, same for me, F11 full screen works if I do it before I start the slideshow, but not once I have clicked on play, even if I pause slideshow F11 has no effect. I have to put mouse cursor at top of screen to get the top taskbar to show so that I can 'escape' from the slideshow to another tab then F11 will work again.

You may need that on some keyboards and some laptops. But I don't think that is the problem. Like you once the slideshow starts running F11 doesn't work. This is on Opera and Firefox. More worryingly I started the slideshow in Opera in fullscreen and then couldn't use escape or F11 to revert without clicking to change to a different part of the website. It seems to be the wway the site is designed.

It's ironic that it should happen on a page where you really need it.

no idea exactly what your issue is...

might help

The F11 key goes into and out of Full Screen mode. Hiding and showing the toolbars happens to be a side effect of this, but if you can't get them to show either way, something else is hiding them.

Try right-clicking on the toolbar and looking for Customize or View/View Toolbars. You should find a way of turning on missing toolbars there.

A menu item under View may also enable you to get back missing toolbars.

It seems to be the way the site is designed.

Not here it isn't - my F11 key works before and during the running of the slide show in Firefox and IE. (and after!)
